Followed by a drinks reception in the Todd Hamied Room

Prof. Dr. Teakjip Ha is Professor of Physics, Head of Single Molecule Nanometry Group, University of Illinois; Investigator of Howard Hughes Medical Institute and Co-Director of the Center for the Physics of Living Cells (CPLC)

Taekjip Ha will talk about:
  • Recent tool developments in single molecule nanometry where a position of a single fluorescent molecule can be determined with a single nanometer precision
  • How these new tools provide fundamental insights on how molecular motors move on cellular highwayscombining optical tweezers that can apply and measure pico-Newton forces to single biological molecules with single molecule FRET
  • Latest studies on complex processes that require coordination between multiple proteins, such as DNA replication, using multi-dimensional single molecule measurement techniques
